A new photography exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum will enjoy, to say the least, good timing.
Starting on Nov. 21, a series of striking portraits of famous black Americans will go on display at the museum, just three weeks after the borough strongly backed Barack Obama for president.
“The Black List Project” is a joint effort by portrait photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and writer Elvis Mitchell to explore what it is like to be black in America.
The portrait subjects include tennis champion Serena Williams, comedian (and Bedford-Stuyvesant native) Chris Rock, novelist Toni Morrison (pictured) and Time-Warner giant Richard Parsons.
“The Black List Project” will be on display from Nov. 21 through March 29 at the Brooklyn Museum [200 Eastern Pkwy., at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights, (718) 638-5000]. Open Wednesday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm; weekends, 11 am to 6 pm.
